Here’s what the 33-year-old Masters of Sex star had to share with the mag:
On if she draws from anything in real life when creating characters: “Not really. I mean, to some extent, sure. It’s our job to portray people who are not ourselves, so we need to pay attention to how people who are not ourselves are existing in the world. But, for me, it usually starts with putting myself in the situation and thinking about how I’d react. I’m pretty good at this point at putting myself in somebody else’s shoes and knowing how she would behave.”
On if she’s tempted to join social media: “I do look at other people’s social media sites. And I’m a really big fan of looking at other people’s Tinder and swiping for them, because I think that’s so strange and odd. But for me personally, there’s no temptation. It’s probably a combination of things. I have reasons for staying off, for personal as well as professional reasons. But more than that, there’s something about turning your friends or anybody you know into your audience that doesn’t sit well for me. I always found it strange that you’re creating essentially an advertisement for your life.”
